Sean Rafferty presents a selection of music and guests from the arts world.

Composer, conductor and chansonnier HK Gruber joins Sean to talk about his forthcoming concert performance of Die Dreigroschenoper by Kurt Weill at the Barbican in London, with soprano Dorothea Roschmann, mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirschlager and tenor Ian Bostridge.

Ahead of Caius Consort's inaugural performance at the 2009 Spitalfields Summer Music Festival, director Geoffrey Webber talks to Sean and directs the Consort from the harpsichord, with additional improvisation from triple-pipes player Barnaby Brown.

Plus a performance from celebrated pianist Freddy Kempf and an update from Petroc Trelawny on 2009's BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition.
